Sen. Hillary Clinton would be the Democratic presidential nominee if John Edwards had been caught in his lie about an extramarital affair and forced out of the race last year, insists a top Clinton campaign aide, making a charge that could exacerbate previously existing tensions between the camps of Clinton and Sen. Barack Obama.
"I believe we would have won Iowa, and Clinton today would therefore have been the nominee," former Clinton Communications Director Howard Wolfson told ABCNews.com.
Clinton finished third in the Iowa caucuses barely behind Edwards in second place and Obama in first. The momentum of the insurgent Obama campaign beating two better-known candidates -- not to mention an African-American winning in such an overwhelmingly white state -- changed the dynamics of the race forever.
Seriously Jemison, get over it.
Would there really be a difference in "leadership" between Obama, Clinton, or McCain?
Supposedly he had the affair as early as 2006. Certainly the Clinton bloodhounds picked up on it. Why didn't they use the info earlier? The only reason I can think of is the love child hadn't been born yet...
Edwards remaining in the primary probably didn't hurt Clinton at all but it's just another situation that the pro-Clinton people can twist to try to get people to believe that Obama has stolen the nomination from Clinton.
